We live in a world with over 4 billion livestock animals and 200 million pets. The need to identify these animals for management, food safety, disease control and recovery purposes has become more urgent than ever before.
The possible applications for visual identification and radio frequency identification products, are vast and varied and will continue to grow as the world understands the many practical uses and important benefits RFID ear tag and microchip technology offers.
The basis of LifeChip and Destron's technology is a proprietary microchip.
This microchip incorporates passive (inductively powered) radio frequency technology with corresponding scanning devices. Electronic microchips and associated reading and scanning systems are offered in a number of versions, each adapted for use in particular applications in the animal industry. Further information on available scanners and readers can be found by following the links to Livestock and Companion Animals.
